Today continues the weekly series, F*ing Fridays, which will coincidentally occur on Friday. I mentioned some of my favorite F words back on Day 5, including: Fearless, Fabulous, Fine, Fun, Faith, Freedom, Forgiveness, to name a Few.
Last week I dove into the word Forward.
Today’s F*ing Friday is dedicated to the word:
As in, storybook moments.
On this day, the world celebrated the marriage of Will and Kate, forevermore the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
I did too.
Alarm set off and festivities promptly kicked off at 4 AM. So British of me to be on time!
Of course, all I had to do was roll out of bed and plop myself on the couch. The hardest part was finding the right buttons on the remote to turn on the TV in the dark.
It was totally worth it.
How often do we get to see a girl (who isn’t a cartoon image) become a princess?
I remember watching the wedding of Princess Diana, almost thirty years ago. The excitement! The fascination! That beautiful princess walking down the aisle with her very long train. I was only seven, but it has stayed with me ever since.
These moments become blazoned upon hearts and minds for a lifetime, like folklore and fairytales.
Because who doesn’t love a fairytale?
But, I also believe it doesn’t take a wedding to create storybook moments.
To be the writer, illustrator and producer of our very own fairytale. That is the stuff dreams are made of.
As in, don’t wait to kiss a frog, find a charmer to locate missing slippers, let alone kick off the day that begins the rest of your life.
I say, be the queen or king of your own destiny and dreams.
Believe me, I love a good wedding! I adored the play-by-play nuptials of Prince William and the celebration of the Royal Family’s newest princess. The dress! The lace! The Queen in yellow! The kiss! The second kiss!
It’s a great story.
But, let’s face it. Even the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will eventually have to check email, find something for dinner, and attend to the realities of their version of real life. And, that’s where the fairytale really begins.
So, here’s to your very own fairytale, whatever it may be.
May you have the storybook moments you dream of, and more!
